In brief: Non surgical

Tracheomalacia is rarely serious enough to need surgery.
The best treatments are pulmonary medications like asthma medications. If necessary, nighttime CPAP or bipap therapy like used for sleep apnea can help a lot. It is best to make sure there isn't an underlying cause. Tracheomalacia is not the same as laryngomalacia and is not related.
